No Beard Filter On Snapchat Have You Tried?

If you haven’t tried the “no beard” filter that you’ve seen everyone doing on TikTok, you’ve got to try it — if you have a beard, of course. This won’t work on the beardless. TikTok users are posting videos of themselves unveiling their “no beard” look to their significant others and the reactions are priceless.

If you haven’t seen this trend yet, hop on TikTok and search “no beard filter,” which has more than 52 million views. Most of the videos start with the person covering their mouths with their hand, then moving their hand away to show the results. Some even noticed the filter adds a little roundness to fill out their face. Note that the filter appears to work best on those with shorter beards, so if your beard is several inches long, it’s likely to still show the hair that falls below your chin.

Be warned that if you haven’t seen yourself with a clean-shaven look in some time, you may be shocked to see what lies on the other side of that filter. One thing to note, however, is that while the videos are popular on TikTok, they’re created using a filter in Snapchat and then uploaded to TikTok. Here’s how to use the #nobeardfilter on Snapchat, and then get your video seen.



Ferst Readers of Henry County is presenting an online campaign called “Beards for Books” to raise money to buy books for local preschool children.

Ferst Readers registers children, who receive in the mail an age-appropriate book each month, up to their fifth birthday. The program is designed to encourage parents to read to their children and have them ready to enter kindergarten with a love for learning in place. Currently, 1800 Henry County preschoolers receive a book each month through Ferst Readers.

“Our local chapter has had to get creative with fundraising because of pandemic conditions the past year,” says Doris Griffin, chair of the Henry County chapter. “We had to cancel our spring luncheon last year and we are being cautious about resuming any big events this year. In addition, individual schools in our  system have been unable to hold many of the fundraisers that they usually host.
